German actor Anton Diffring dubbed John McEnery's voice as Captain Von Schoenvorts, allegedly because the producers felt McEnery had used a silly voice for the part. See more »
The German crewmen all carry the "Artillery Model" P-08 Luger pistol with a tangent rear sight mounted on a 200 mm (7.9 in) barrel. This model was used by Army troops and not Navy sailors, who should be carrying the Navy P-04 with a 150 mm (5.9 in) barrel and a two-position rear sight on the toggle.
The producers may have been forced to use incorrect pistols because the Navy P-04 is considerably more rare, ironically because many were sent to the bottom of the ocean together with the U-boat crewmen carrying them. See more »
I do not expect anyone to believe the story that I am about to relate. It even seems incredible to me that all that I have passed through, all those weird and terrifying experiences, should have been encompassed within as short a span as three brief months. It must have been a little after 3 o'clock in the afternoon that it began - the afternoon of June 3rd, 1916.

In 1916, during the World War II, a British passenger ship is torpedoed by the German U-boat commanded by Captain Von Schoenvorts (John McEnery) and sinks. The survivors Bowen Tyler (Doug McClure) and Lisa Clayton (Susan Penhaligon) join a few crew members that has also survived and Bowen convinces them to take over the submarine that has come to the surface. They sail together but they end lost in the middle of the ocean. After many incidents between Germans and British, the two groups team-up to survive and arrive in Caprona, a land that is not charted in the maps. Soon they realize that the land has dinosaurs, pterodactyls and Neanderthals. They capture a native, Ahm (Bobby Parr), and they learn that there is oil on the land. They see the chance to refine it and leave Caprona. Will they succeed in their intent?
"The Land That Time Forgot" is an unforgettable adventure based on Edgar Rice Burroughs' novel with the same title. The plot is delightfully naive and is funny to see how we could buy a story of a land forgotten by time forty years ago. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "A Terra Que o Tempo Esqueceu" ("The Land That Time Forgot")
